Sourcing materials which are readily available in the geographic region allows us to reward our customers with cost savings while also reducing waste and minimising environmental impacts.
Dessein Furniture is a proud user of Tasmanian Hydrowood, sourced sustainably from the dammed Pieman River of Tasmania. A range of treasured Tasmanian timbers are salvaged from beneath the waters of Lake Pieman, where they would have otherwise eventually decompose releasing greenhouse gases. This is another unique way that Dessein Furniture strives to find the perfect harmony between its customers and the environment. Take a look at the unique beauty of our Pieman Range.
The Rubberwood used by Dessein Furniture is an agricultural waste product from latex production. Rubberwood is also know as "Plantation Hardwood". available in large and renewable quantities throughout South-East Asia. As a sap producing species, Rubberwood yields latex for rubber based products so the plantation trees have already served a useful function. After tapping is finished, the tree is felled and a new sapling is planted, the mature tree is then used for furniture production. Rubberwood is economically viable and ecologically sound. The wood has a similar grain quality and colour to Oak which is why it’s often called ‘Asian Oak’.
